Strategic Conversation with Ivan McKee MSP on Trade, Investment and Innovation

Tuesday 3 November, 2pm

The event will focus on the role of trade, investment and innovation in economic recovery, and how businesses and the Scottish Government can drive this by building a deeper and even more collaborative partnership.

Participants will have the chance to discuss Mr McKee’s portfolio responsibilities, including:

  • What practical ideas and projects can businesses and government, and their partners, take forward together to increase productivity through innovation, trade and internationalisation, and investment?
  • Where can businesses and government, and their partners, work together more closely to deliver the priorities and ambitions in the Scottish Government’s Exports Plan and its imminent Inward Investment Plan?
  • How will we grow Scotland’s life sciences sector following its contribution to the global response to COVID-19?
  • How will we build a Low Carbon Economy and achieve Scotland’s Net Zero ambitions?
  • What will replace European Structural and Investment Funds in Scotland?

The conversation will inform the ongoing refresh of SCDI’s Blueprint for the Scottish economy.
